In a rapidly growing industry, businesses require a fresh and innovative approach. Every aspect of life demands new ideas, creativity, and a new way to look at. This era belongs to creativity and thus design thinking is gaining importance, and professionals having an aptitude and skills are in high demand. As Design education is becoming mainstream, the field has been disrupted by coming of institutions like World University of Design offering cross disciplinary courses with contemporary curriculum & pedagogy in a university environment. There are very few educational institutions in India that offer futuristic odd-ball courses for the students.
World University of Design (WUD)equipped with one of the largest portfolio of design courses in India offering over 24 cutting-edge programs including transportation design, product design, game design, film & video, Digital Drawing & Illustration, built environment & habitat studies, design management, art education and curatorial practice among others; going way beyond the traditional offerings.
These professional future-oriented odd-ball courses aim to produce skilful professionals who will shape up seamlessly with the work environment and readily meet the requirements of the fast-growing global design economy. These courses offer unique platforms that not only aim at academics but also look to spread awareness of newer, emerging career streams and, perhaps, even lead to job creation.
Dr Sanjay Gupta, Vice Chancellor – World University of Design on the occasion said, “Every individual is different with unique talents and varied skills and therefore, should choose a career path according to their passion. At World University of Design, we aim at providing experiential learning to our students through a mix of in-studio learning, field-work and theory. The so-called unconventional odd-ball courses are in fact well-researched well-thought out courses that have been designed keeping the future requirements in mind. These courses will prepare the students in various streams other than the traditional ones thus making them future ready.”
